About P.D.O. Lavender
When traveling through the Provencal region of France rolling fields of lavender are a common sight. Essential oils extracted from the lavender flowers in Haute-Provence are distilled to produce some of our favorite organic L'OCCITANE products. Our lavender bath, body care and home products provide relaxing aromas through natural ingredients.
Since 1981, lavender producers from Haute-Provence have obtained an PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) quality label for their lavender essential oil. This label identifies a very high quality production. L’OCCITANE only uses PDO Lavender essential oil. To obtain the PDO label, essential oil must come up to very strict standards.
